  • Description


    Our Rainforest is establishing the ancient ecosystem of original rainforest by re-planting and restoring 15 hectares (150,000 sqm) of former sugar cane land south of the Daintree River area. We also care for native wildlife, such as the Spectacled Flying Fox and the Little Red Flying Fox.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    They will learn how important it is to maintain a healthy eco system, provide habitat for native wildlife and care for native wildlife, such as Flying Foxes, micro bats and other little critters such as bandicoots and monitor lizards.

  • Help


    The volunteering for the accomodation is 2-3h a day and includes gardening, weeding, tree planting and general maintenance.
    If you'd like to help with the native wildlife such as Flying Foxes, which includes preparing food or cleaning the flight cage, we kindly ask you to be vaccinated for Rabies. Our bats are healthy, but it is a requirement from Queensland Health.
    We require a handy person with commitment, cleanliness and a sense of humour.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    There is heaps to do here in the Far North. Explore the Daintree Rainforest with its abundance of rare plants.
    You could go snorkelling or diving on the Great Barrier Reef from Port Douglas or Cape Tribulation.
    The tablelands are appr. 50 km away and is very different from the lush rainforest here. You will find a Mango winery, a Chocolate factory and a distillery near Mareeba.
    Transport is limited where I live, so having a car is preferable.
    I live in the middle of the rainforest and the beauty of the nature around here is amazing.
